There are considerable expenses incurred by the league from county fees, light fees, utilities, insurance, field maintenance, uniforms and equipment and we rely on local businesses like yours to fund a substantial portion of our budget. DCLL welcomes supporters like you to help sponsor a team and support your business in the process.

T-Ball & Machine Pitch Practices

During the first half of the 2017 Spring season the T-Ball and Machine Pitch teams will be scheduled for individual one hour team practices at Competitive Edge, 14849 Persistence Drive, Woodbridge, VA 22191. These practices will be held during the week so the managers can work with their players to develop the skills needed to be successful throughout the season. The teams will be scheduled for one game, typically on the weekends, where they will use the skills they just learned in live game action. During the second half of the season, teams will no longer practice at Competitive Edge but instead play a game during the week, along with a game on the weekends.
